Food was very good and fresh. We were headed to another restaurant but the wait ended up being too long for our 11 month old. So we headed to the sun fish. Very pleasently surprised.

We stopped here to eat lunch at 2 pm. There were only 3 other tables in the restaurant. We ordered soup which took 20 minutes to come out, and when we got it, it was cold and in a very tiny cup. Our waitress did not come back to fill our drinks which were both empty until 10 minutes later... More

After a substantial wait (which we expected), we were seated in a very high-traffic area. Our chairs were bumped by both waitstaff and other patrons throughout the meal. Our waitress got our drinks wrong, and failed to mention beer specials that would have saved us money. We later saw them posted on the bar and had to ask, but alas... More

While shopping in this little plaza,we figured out we were hungry and the Sun Fish Grill caught our eye. Boy we're we glad we went in. After being welcomed and seated, our waitress, Jessica, came over. She was a total delight! We had great drinks, I had a fabulous crab salad and Matt had the delicious lobster roll. We skipped...

For $75 we got a couple of drinks, mediocre mussels, tasteless crab salad and the worlds smallest, most overpriced and tasteless lobster roll. Keep driving there is something better down the road.

Fun, casual, no frills restaurant with affordable and fresh seafood. We enjoyed a pound of mussels - all were perfect! Then a pound of peel and eat shrimp and a pound of crab. Excellent! We topped it all off with chocolate cake and key lime pie. Yummy. Jessica (from Sweden via San Francisco) was our wonderful server. Only drawback is... More

Our 86 year old mother and us 5 sisters were in Corolla for 5 nights. Had a delicious dinner at Sun Fish Grill one evening! Jessica was so sweet and friendly! We were celebrating our one sisters 5 1st birthday. She brought her a piece of chocolate cake w/ strawberries, and they sang happy birthday!

The last time my family and I walked into the space where sun fish grill is now, it was several years ago. The place at that time had a name like Coyote Ugly or Wolf Den, or something family friendly like that. The fight we witnessed In the parking lot was harrowing, and more memorable than the food. My how... More

My family of four has been vacationing in Corolla for the last 12 years and we went to the Sun Fish Grill for the first time last night - we wish we had not. There are many other choices in the region that provide better value for a family. Following was our experience: Arrived at 8:00 and were told there... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant. I would like to offer our apologies for your negative experience at Sun Fish Grill. We recruit our employees from eastern Europe as there really isn't a labor force here in Corolla. The language barrier is difficult for the students as it is for our customers. On friday of this...
